Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Is she panting, or drooling?
How long is she like this?
when and what did she eat last?
was she upset, stressed or frightened by anything?
is she an only dog?
what is "bowing"
I understand.Please stand by while I type detailed answer.
In the meantime, feel all ove her back, neck, legs and tail and tell me if anythng seems to hurt her.
It sounds like she hurt herself. Because of the bowing, I am suspecting she injured a disc or vertebrae in her back or neck.She may be trying to stretch it out. Atendon in the leg is also possible.
When a dog gets hurt she becomes fearful because she does not know who to blame.
See if you can ascertain where the pain is coming from.Check inbetween the pads.Look in her mouth. See if she was bitten or bit into something.
Offer her something she cannot refuse like boiled chicken or coattage cheese.
Apply warm compresses to her back and neck.
If she will not eat and continues to act in pain, it is best to have her seen. Do not give her any OTC's because they interact with vet scripted drugs. Except benedryl if you see any swellings 2mg per lb of her weight.
Please let me know how she is doing. I will always be here for both of you.
I hope she feels better very soon.
Sincerest best wishes,
You are very welcome.I am happy to help someone as sweet as you and your baby.
Many times dogs eat grass to try and resolve their own digestive upset. However, grass can cause a blockage so give her fiber bread instead.
Also keep her on a light diet of boiled chicken or cottage cheese.
Add unflavored pedialyte to her water 50/50 to hydrate her and balance her electroytes.
Keep me posted throughout the day on how she is feeling. I hope she feels better and does not need to go to the vet.
